Sydney Festival is here

Sydney Festival has announced its program for 2014 and you have a chance to discover what's in store for summer at the new mini Festival hub in Lower Town Hall between now and Sunday.

You'll be able to learn more about the program, purchase tickets ahead of them going on general sale date next Monday, and even chat to festival director Lieven Bertels about his selections for this year's festival.


The City of Sydney is a Principal Supporter of the 2014 Festival, and we have been a sponsor since the Sydney Festival's beginnings in 1976.

We'll have an interactive multimedia exhibition highlighting different aspects of the program, and you'll be able to watch videos previewing some of the biggest events.

Sydney Festival 2014 will feature more than 100 events across 33 venues, including the world premiere of Black Diggers, a major new theatre piece telling the stories of 1,000 Indigenous soldiers who fought in World War One.

Hyde Park will also come to life as the Sydney Festival Village, featuring pop-up dining options, a festival bar, live music and performances until late into the night.

The mini Festival hub (access via Druitt Street) will be open 10am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday, with guided tours by Lieven Bertels at 2pm each day.
